re: Alvin Gentry on Duncan and Holder: Rondo starting PG, Jrue starting SG - karmapol1ce
the one thing i'm liking is that rondo is good at moving without the ball and boogie is a pretty good passer from the post. if we have the right spacing i could see it working in theory. but they need someone knockdown at the 3. they're a 3 point shooter away from real spacing. i could see g...

Alvin Gentry on Duncan and Holder: Rondo starting PG, Jrue starting SG - karmapol1ce
https://twitter.com/MasonGinsberg/status/887334610899808256 :dunno: now that it's done, ready to see if it pays off. i can see a world where their minutes are staggered so one of them is on the floor at all times. at least you'll have a PG on the floor....

re: Pels meeting with Rondo - karmapol1ce
[quote]Wonder if we would take a flyer on Hezonja. He has fallen out of favor and is a project, but may come cheaply (and is still young).[/quote] my guess is that the new GM will try to at least salvage some more trade value than where he is now. he is a former lottery pick. that said, that's...

re: Pels meeting with Rondo - karmapol1ce
[quote]But there's incredible fallacies in using defensive numbers. [/quote] fallacy or the numbers don't necessarily point to his skill level? i'll stick with idea that the soon to be 32 year old who never fully recovered from his ACL surgery probably isn't the defensive stopper he used to be...

re: Pels meeting with Rondo - karmapol1ce
[quote] At SAC he was 12 / 5 / 12. That's pretty good for a PG. Why does it matter how many FTs he's shooting if he averages 12 assists per game. [/quote] i'm with you on everything except your continued listing of these counting stats. does he make the team better? i don't care how many ass...

[quote]I'm not calling it a slam dunk move or anything, but I think the positives outweigh the negatives. [b]I'd prefer Rondo on a cheap 1 year deal over RJ here on an expensive deal.[/b][/quote] i get that. like i said, vet minimum or bust on rondo. probably for me still no, but i could see ...

[quote]He shoots about 5-7% better than Asik. That's still hack-a-whatever territory.[/quote] frick yeah it is. not to mention, you SEE it if you watch him. he starts playing scared at the end of games. he doesn't want to get fouled. he stops driving. he passes earlier in the shotclock. all th...

re: Pels meeting with Rondo - karmapol1ce
[quote]Traded because they were rebuilding and he was valuable [/quote] so you're saying they sold high on a player who was overrated and still could get a return? he was an average player getting a superstar salary at the time of trade. he's been on three teams since. who seems to have won that ...

re: Pels meeting with Rondo - karmapol1ce
i just don't see how having rondo helps. he's lost a step. he's a head case. he's gotten to the point where he's afraid to go to the rack because he knows he'll get fouled and have to miss free throws. he's a decent three point shooter on his best day. floor spacing wise this is just a terribl...
